To categorise this sport as “horror” is a sarcasm.
Fortunately, a number of avid gamers have uploaded mods that make exploring Raccoon Town rather less scary. Listed here are some NexusMods that turn out to be Resident Evil 2 from survival-horror to survival-comedy.
We knew Mr. X packed a punch, however this mod by means of MisterHecks presentations how a lot warmth the Tyrant is packing. “Beachboy X” eliminates your nemesis’ implementing trenchcoat and fedora, changing them with slick sun shades and, ahem, slightly umbrella.

Mr. Squeaky X
Mr. X can also be as demanding as he’s menacing. As we discussed in our overview, puzzle fixing can turn out to be slightly of a battle with the Tyrant following you round like a stranger at a bar who can’t take a touch. We’re no longer certain if this mod makes issues worse. Mr. Squeaky X by means of Jewelson replaces the sound of Mr. X’s figuring out footsteps with an impact that appears like he’s strolling round in slippers product of rubber geese.

Resident Evil 2 added unfastened DLC final month that permits you to play as Tofu, a literal block of knife-wielding bean curd. When you love Tofu such a lot, and one simply isn’t sufficient, Snipzu’s Tofu Zombies mod turns all enemies into large blocks of mashed soybeans. For as humorous as this mod is, it items a captivating problem to gameplay: how do you carry out headshots? Do tofu have heads? We don’t know!
All Enemies Are Mr. X
The humorous a part of this checklist is over now, as a result of this subsequent mod appears like a straight-up nightmare. Zealot Tormunds, a consumer at the Resident Evil modding discussion board, created a mod that replaces nearly each enemy within the sport with Mr. X. Tormunds suggests the usage of flash grenades to help in skirting massive hordes of X however isn’t positive if the sport is beatable with the mod put in. In truth, this is kinda humorous.
